The streaming tracks will appear in Serato just like regular music files. Additionally, saved playlists on the streaming platforms will automatically appear in the Serato DJ library.
To make use of the integration, DJs will need a subscription to both or either of the streaming services.
More details about Serato’s integration with SoundCloud and TIDAL will be announced later.

SoundCloud has announced that it has expanded its revenue sharing program to include to DJs and producers.
The SoundCloud Premier program, as it’s called, enables content creators to earn revenue generated from subscriptions and advertising on the platform.
According to the company’s blog:
“Beginning today, DJs and producers who create sets, remixes and other forms of creative works will now be invited to join our SoundCloud Premier program, and earn revenue for the tracks they share on SoundCloud.”
There’s one catch, though: the program is currently invite-only. However, SoundCloud says that it’s increasing the number of people invited every day.
Content creators can sign up here.

SoundCloud founder Eric Wahlforss has said in an interview that DJ mixes are now legal and “problem-free” on the service.
Wahlforss told Germany’s Groove magazine:
“During the negotiations for SoundCloud Go, we achieved agreement with collecting societies like GEMA in Germany, making these problems a thing of the past -– even for users who do not subscribe. This means that DJ mixes are now legal and problem-free on SoundCloud. So this is a very positive news for DJs.”
SoundCloud was once the go-to platform to host DJ mixes, but many DJs have stopped uploading their mixes in recent years because of increased takedowns for copyright infringement. Some have even had their accounts deleted for repeat violations.
As a result, many DJs have been uploading their mixes to less popular services like Mixcloud and Mixcrate. However, those platforms have been subject to increased takedowns over the last year, with Mixcrate closing its doors in October.
While Wahlforss’ comments are encouraging to DJs and fans, it is unclear at this point if all mixes are indeed safe on SoundCloud.
